Bernd
• Vienna, Austria
• Color Tips: You can go wild with an colorful neutral base. All colors will pop more and even white will appear stronger. Don't be afraid of color, if you are in love with red, buy a spray can and turn different objets, toys or trash into matching accessories.

Christine
• Santa Ana, California
• Color Tips: Do what you like, and make it work for you, (because it is your room, afterall).

Wayne
• Buffalo, New York
• Color Tips: I think it's best for the colors to not be too "matchy-matchy" but to bounce around the room. It's okay for things not match exactly.

Bridget
• Minneapolis, Minnesota
• Color Tips: Pick a color you adore and use it in your house whether it's the main wall color or found in accent pieces. You won't be unhappy when you choose a color that you love.

Monica
• Viroqua, Wisconsin
• Color Tips: What colors make you feel happy? What colors relax you and help you feel safe? Trust your gut. Be your own color guru. Who's life (and house) is it anyhow?

Molly
• Atlanta, Georgia
• Color Tips: Pick a palette and stick with it. Repeat colors often enough so they look intentional. Make neutrals work hard to ground the space, and let the colors be the personality.

Evita
• Charleston, South Carolina
• Color Tips: If you have a color urge, indulge it! Paint is the easiest way to make a dramatic change in a room and the easiest to change if you don't like the results. Ultimately it needs to make you happy.

Fiametta
• Ghiffa, Italy
• Color Tips: Concentrate on a detail (in my room, the tiles of the floor, from the first years of 1900) and imagine the rest, playing with shadows and assonances.

Carrol & Paige
• Arlington, Tennessee
• Color Tips: Defining your color palette is a must. Three colors work well. Let one color play the lead with the rest following. For example, yellow is the dominant color in this room, taking up nearly 2/3 of room. The charcoal gray is limited to the accent wall. The white serves as a needed place for your eye to rest in this bright and graphic room.

Anna
• Minneapolis, Minnesota
• Color Tips: Surround yourself with the colors you are naturally drawn to without worrying about the rules. Play with opposites, in this case, strong oranges with airy and watery blues.
